The crabbing has slowed again. Saw a limit from a boater in the bay and a few other crabs from the pier but no big numbers. Maybe all these storms have got them hunkered down. Better weather and slower tides will hopefully kick a few out this next week. Surfperch fishing is slow. I haven't seen any sharks or rays yet this year. Spring low tides are coming so at least we can go clamming and cockling.

The crabbing has picked up again in the bay. Last week a local had twelve legal dungeness in his pot after an overnight soak on the pier. Two of the regulars caught their limits from the pier this morning. The crabbing can be even better from a boat if you're in the right place. I'm not supposed to tell you the good spot, but if you see fifty crab pot floats in one little area I think you'll get the idea.
